Beginning with GNU ghostscript 8.62.0, the bug in ghostscript has been fixed. Therefore the parameter "-g2x2" is not needed any more (but does usually no bad).

However, with GPL Ghostscript, that parameter is still needed and therefore I will leave it enabled by default.

The gv-gs-hidden-param.patch indeed works, but it first requires this patch to be reversed (which in addition to breaking the -dFIXEDMEDIA patch, seems to cause saved parameters in the .gv file, like GV.watchFile, to be ignored):

Thanks for the bug report. I am not an official maintainer, but gv is my by far most used postscript previewer - in fact, the same bug can be triggered with usual postscript files, too.

I have benn testing the attached fix since 1/4 year with best results, so it's time to release it :-)

"-dFIXEDMEDIA" instead of "-g2x2" seems to be much more compatible.

Please note that this patch changes the default parameters of the ghostscript invokation in the "State - Ghostscript options - Arguments" dialog, so consider clicking on "System defaults" in that window. If the user may edit the parameter, he can easyly change it for hard files.

As usual, my contact info is in the patch file as comment.

This patch causes gv to show a completely blank page from some postscript documents, see: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121849

Both gv-3.5.8 and gv-3.6.1 have a well-known cropping bug.

For example, see

at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58840.

Neither posted test cases for this particular bug, but here is an example:

A patch to workaround this bug is attached.
